Aston Villa Review: Episode 29 - collapsing like a house of cards

13 Premier League matches to go and Aston Villa's inability to see out a game is starting to see the team cut adrift in the relegation zone. On Saturday, a 3-1 lead wasn't enough to secure all three points at Everton, but Villa's counter-attacking potency was again encouraging. But the 2-1 home loss to Newcastle United was another against a close rival and showed once again that this team only plays for 45 minutes.

Next up for Villa is a home match against West Ham United, and Chris and Steve preview that game in this week's show as well as looking back on the Newcastle and Everton results. We also run the rule over Yacouba Sylla and Simon Dawkins, Villa's underwhelming transfer deadline day signings.
